there was this young arkansas democratic governor bill clinton unseating an incumbent republican president. the uncomfortable part of that memory for democrats is that even though bill clinton did beat president bush in 1992 he did so with only 43% of the vote. bill clinton got 43% of the vote that year. president bush got 37% of the vote. and even though it is always a bad idea to do math on television, this one isn't that hard. if you add up 43 and 37 you do not get anywhere near 100% of the vote. what happened to the rest of the vote? the wacky thing about the 1992 election in terms of thinking about american binary red versus blue party politics is that another guy who ran that year, a third person, got almost 20% of the vote. it was ross perot, right? giant sucking sound. ross perot got a very large proportion of the vote for a third-party candidate. nearly 20%. and who knows how the votes would have been divided between bill clinton and george h.w. bush had ross perot not been in there that year. but one thing that's often forgotten about the 1992 race was that ross perot was not the
it to bill clinton for eight years. bill clinton was smart enough crafty enough to find a way to rise above and beat us at every turn. he did it by continuing to reach out. i always say when i was a lawyer, i had pictures after congress, all these pictures of bill clinton with much appreciation. it would drive my law partners crazy. appreciation for what? you impeached him. i said yeah, those were the days. you got to reach out. >> here's a question i don't think any of us can answer. only the president can answer. can he utilize the power, the threat of power of the presidency the way lyndon johnson did with regard to resolutions during the course of the vietnam war? one senator voting against him, not being with him. frank church had voted against the vietnam war. lyndon johnson says the next time you want to damnen your district call frank church. can barack obama utilize the inherent power of that office? >> if he has personal relationships -- lyndon johnson had remarkable relationships. they knew when lyndon called lyndon meant business. the president needs to

writer for president clinton and michael avlon. obviously that was a reference, a rather oblique one, to the gun control debate, but a reference it appeared to be. the fourth school shooting, though, in more than a month. nearly half the american people disapprove of what the president is doing on gun control. is it time now for less talk and more action from the president on gun control? >> well, you're right, that in that powerful speech yesterday, he used the words and the sentiments of the founders to argue for his agenda and one of the elements obliquely, though not explicitly, was gun control. now, he took the first step with those 19 executive actions, but the next step of course is in the hands of congress, where the nra has been one of the most powerful forces for years and years and years. the really interesting question is this. this horrible shooting today following on those other horrible shootings, of course we've had these before, but since newtown, perhaps things have tipped. now the media is paying attention. every time it's a new bit of information about why we need

, president clinton followed in his footsteps. president clinton, in 1998, took executive action as president to ban the importation of more than 50 different kinds of semiautomatic assault weapons. this was in addition to the assault weapons ban. this was further action taken by the president alone in 1998. he took executive action to ban the importation of certain kinds of guns. today, president obama became yet another modern president to use his executive authority for reform of gun-related laws. president obama did not use his authority as president as his predecessors did. and i mean that in this sense. none of the executive actions that president obama did today have anything to do with banning specific weapons, banning the importation of specific weapons the way that previous presidents did. what distinguishes what president obama did today is the breath of policy changes that he enacted. and, yes, on some access to some specific types of fire power in this country. but that is just one part of this very broad-based package of things. that is what is groundbreaking today. it is the br

that derails their presidency. clinton had lewinsky, bush had katrina. so you have to wonder what -- we can't imagine what now what can transpire over the next four years and how that plays into his agenda which is gun control, the economy, health care overhaul. >> and foreign policy is always an issue. so you have the arab spring. most people think that that could be ushering a lot of democracy into the middle east, but we don't know. there's still a lot of tension there. that's going to be an issue for him, as well. >> the plate is full. so enjoy the party today, because the work starts tomorrow. in fact, some republicans are having a little retreat in vegas right now to get out of d.c. so hopefully the partisanship eases a little bit. >> about 100 of them have departed. >> never dull. >>> also some other news this morning, we want to wish our friend and colleague barbara walters a speedy recovery. she was hospitalized saturday after a minor fall in washington. barbara, who is now 83 years old, fell on the stairs at the british ambassador's residence and cut her forehead. she is alert and

." >> why is bill clinton out there at the golden globes last night being brought on stage to thunderous standing ovations to talk about lincoln and what he did during -- what did lincoln do? as far as these people are concerned, he wiped out the south. but he didn't finish, so what the left is admitting today that they are doing is once -- trying to finish it off. lincoln did not fully finish. they're all focused on gods and guns in the south. they love both of them. and so the south has to be wiped out again. i'm telling you, essentially there is an all-out effort being made to marginalize conservatism. >> reminds me of radio rwanda in the bad old days. it's been far right republicans obviously doing all the civil war talk. they're the ones talking about the civil war, about nullification of federal laws and all the secession petitions out there. >>> before house republicans head off for their annual retreat this week, i think it's in williamsburg, the democratic congressional campaign committee offered up some suggestions for planned activities and classes. how to stop talking about l
the clinton era, limiting high capacity magazines to ten bullets, providing more resources to states in reporting criminals and the mentally ill. out lawing armor-piercing bullets and funding, more funding, for police officers around the country. the president also signed 23 executive actions, most of them reinforcing laws already on the books. some actions are as simple as nominating. the president is asking the centers for disease control to study gun violence, including the effects of violent video games. he is calling for a report on lost and stolen firearms, all common sense stuff. the proposals are about sanity. as much as anything else. and i hope it all starts in the senate. i want to see the republicans filibuster this. i want to see them filibuster against the will of the american people. i mean, they are sensible, reasonable things that are out there to restrict the ownership of military whens owned by citizens. president obama is not the only president who believed this. >> weapons designed for the theater of war have no place in a movie theater. a majority of americans a

're going to hear a repudiation of bill clinton's the era of big government is over. they'll hear no, no, we need more big government. what we've been about, if you ask the american people, president obama should focus on something, would it be equality or economic renewal, most americans would say economic renewal. >> do you think he won't be focusing on it because he spoke about equality today? >> well, n because he spoke about equality today. it is because he elevated it as a central theme of his presidency and he said that without that, there is no progress. no economic -- that comes morally and i think linearly first. that's not i think what the american people would think. >> but here's what i think is actually happening. the trickle-down economic model that says, when the wealthy do well, everybody else will do better, i think it has been discredited. i think what obama firmly believes is that the economy grows from the middle class out. so therefore, it used to be the case you would say either you're concerned about growth or about equality. i think what obama believes is that when y
